Will the Apple tv only play movies you've purchased through iTunes, or can it play all movies saved to your library?

I have movies on my external hard drive and in my iTunes library to save space and time. Will the Apple TV only play movies that i have purchased through iTunes, or all movies i have saved to my Movie Library in iTunes?

    You can obtain apps to do this. For example, you can use Plex on your computer and iPad/iPhone, to stream from your movie library using the iPhone or iPad as a "middleman", then send it to the Apple TV using Airplay. This works well for me.
